Cozy, comfortable and convenient

  • 4 of 5

It's hard being away from home for the holidays but Joan and Steve's place made it just right for us. The house was convenient to.get to the highway to visit our daughter, son-in-law and new grandson. The 3 bedrooms and 2 baths were spacious for the 4 adults staying there. the house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with nice plates, dishes, silverware and cookware so I had no problem cooking meals even Christmas eve dinner for the family. it was a real plus being able to have our dog there as well lots of room for her to run. if we are back in the summer we will book again.

Lovely well-maintained home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in late fall to attend a college football game and couldn’t have been more satisfied. The house is in the country, but a short driving distance into Madison. It was clean, comfortable, and very well-maintained. The property itself was lovely- I wish it had been summer so that we could have enjoyed the beautiful vegetable garden and grounds more! Joan, the owner, was so friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Wonderful house for our Thanksgiving celebration

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our second stay at this sun-filled house, and especially appreciated the well-equipped kitchen, with space for multiple cooks. The dining room table also got lots of use. Fresh eggs and brussels sprouts from Joan were delicious! Everything was very clean, the beds were comfortable, and the location, minutes from a dog park and downtown Middleton, was perfect. Thanks Steve and Joan!

Great value, 20 min from downtown!

  • 5 of 5

Joan and Steve’s house was perfect for our party of 6 coming in town for a Badger Game. The house was clean, comfortable and added a little country charm. While it would’ve been nice to walk from our place to downtown and Camp Randall, if you have to drive anyway, what’s the difference between 10 and 20 min? Great value! I’d recommend it to any future guests!
